Top Rope Nation Wrestling Podcast

Three friends talking everything pro wrestling (current and nostalgia from the past). Laughs, beers, and a good time are sure to follow.

Ep. 94: AEW TV, Debunking Montreal Truthers, Superstar Shakeup

April 18th, 2019

We've got a lot to cover this week. In the moments prior to us recording, all kinds of conflicting information started circulating concerning All Elite Wrestling's future on television. We break down all the latest on this for you. 

Then, we switch gears and talk about this week's "Dark Side of the Ring" VICELAND documentary on the 1997 Survivor Series and Montreal Screwjob. We explain where the documentary fell short (big time), what Bruce Prichard got wrong, and prove to you once and for all why Montreal "truthers" are completely nuts.

Lastly, we look at this week's WWE Superstar Shakeup and discuss the winners and losers of WWE's big roster changes.

Ep. 90: WrestleMania (March) Madness, Charlotte Flair, Kofi Kingston

March 27th, 2019

Less than two weeks from WrestleMania and we've been thrown for another loop - Charlotte Flair is the new WWE SmackDown Women's Champion.

Immediately after this week's SmackDown ended, we turned on the microphones and recorded this episode. We've got instant reactions to Charlottes title victory and Kofi Kingston (finally) being added to the WWE Championship match against Daniel Bryan.

We continue to break down the WrestleMania card, discuss the rumor that WWE is trying to prevent independent companies from booking shows in Tampa during Mania weekend next year, WWE's obsession with name changes, and a whole lot more.

Ep. 89: The Wild Booking of WrestleMania 35

March 19th, 2019

There's a lot to discuss this week. Kofi Kingston came up short in SmackDown's Gauntlet Match, but he's still likely to challenge Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35. Kurt Angle is wrestling his farewell match at WrestleMania against an underwhelming opponent. There's a ton of multi-person matches in the works for the show. Is WWE about to become a babyface promotion once again? And why is this card far from finalized less than three weeks before the show? 

All of this and a whole lot more on this week's episode of Top Rope Nation.
